A single-size pattern I drafted some time ago and did not yet make available (until now)!
A 1940's panties & slip pattern in size 40" bust, 34" waist and 43" hip in which the single panties piece means the pair is cut in one with front and back, so there is no side seam. The waistline of the panties is fitted down via pleats at front, the top edge is finished with a self-straight facing creating a casing in which a buttonhole opening for elastic insertion (across the back edge only) is created.
The gored slip is fitted at the bust via double side darts and a dart coming up from the front gores to correspond with the princess seams. Fabric straps Integrated with the front and back bra or ribbon straps may be used. The top may be finished with lace edging. NO HEM is given for the slip!
Fabrics suggested for this style are: Lingerie Crepe, Muslin, Poplin, Satin or Crepe.
I have been known to sew little sundresses from such patterns as this, so don't limit yourself to letting it go unseen under your favorite 40's frock!
Dear Eva, This would make wonderful underwear for my entry in the 40’s challenge!!!! Do not think I will be able to finish it in time for the challenge though…Sadly enough….
Enjoy reading your weekly articles, such a nice start of the week.
